Is the version 188.8.131.52 of the iMFP solution backwards compatible with any HP MFD firmware lower than 3.7.01 or is this requirement absolute?
It is pretty much absolute. We came forward in this release to the latest SDK environment from HP. Quota and statistics (copy tracking and accounting) absolutely require the newer firmware. All of the testing and validation have been done with this firmware version. If you do use older firmware and encounter a problem the first thing we would recommend is to upgrade firmware.
Thanks, much appreciated! We have a few models that may not have anything higher than 3.7.0 at the moment.
Is v4.2.6 of the iMFP solution compatible with HP FutureSmart firmware v3.8?
Yes. The release notes specify FutureSmart: CPE 3.7.01 or newer. That being said we would recommend updating to CPE 3.8 which is the latest firmware version and is currently available on the HP web site. It has some good fixes in it and is future proof.
